Rubber Rondo a la Byzantine

by Dan Rychtarik


Creating chainmaille jewelry patterns with rubber jump rings is a signature technique of guest designer Dan Rychtarik. He fell in love with the popular Rondo a la Byzantine chainmaille weave and came up with this rubber variation. This version is actually more complicated to weave when using rubber rings and requires more forethought on how to make the pattern work as normal. Shown is a version that uses black rubber rings with our "Merlin Mix" of anodized aluminum rings.
